Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance (A Jack Ryan Novel) Review
- The #1 New York Times–bestselling series is back with the most shocking revelation of all. After years of facing international threats, President Jack Ryan learns that the greatest dangers always come from within…
- It begins with a family dinner in Princeton, New Jersey. After months at sea, U.S. Navy Commander Scott Hagan, captain of the USS James Greer, is on leave when he is attacked by an armed man in a crowded restaurant. Hagan is shot, but he manages to fight off the attacker. Though severely wounded, the gunman reveals he is a Russian whose brother was killed when his submarine was destroyed by Commander Hagan’s ship.
- Hagan demands to know how the would-be assassin knew his exact location, but the man dies before he says more.
- In the international arrivals section of Tehran’s Imam Khomeini airport, a Canadian businessman puts his fingerprint on a reader while chatting pleasantly with the customs official. Seconds later he is shuffled off to interrogation. He is actually an American CIA operative who has made this trip into Iran more than a dozen times, but now the Iranians have his fingerprints and know who he is. He is now a prisoner of the Iranians.
- As more deadly events involving American military and intelligence personnel follow, all over the globe, it becomes clear that there has been some kind of massive information breach and that a wide array of America’s most dangerous enemies have made a weapon of the stolen data. With U.S. intelligence agencies potentially compromised, it’s up to John Clark and the rest of The Campus to track the leak to its source.
- Their investigation uncovers an unholy threat that has wormed its way into the heart of our nation. A danger that has set a clock ticking and can be stopped by only one man…President Jack Ryan.

“I bought this book with some misgivings,I have read every Jack Ryan book written. I did not want to be disappointed with the author change. I must now apologize to Mark Greaney for my doubts. This book was every bit as good as all the rest of the series. I loved the fact that we have many players involved, it is not an easy read. I like a book I have to think about,that does no t go as planned in your mind. There are many things going on at the same time. I love the fact Jack Jr has grown but the best part was the inclusion of Jack Sr, after all he is the character that got us involved in the first place. All good characters must come to an end, but please not yet. Fast paced,believable situations and the hope for yet another book. Good job.” By Patricia A Byers
“…Duty and Honor was just filler material (and a lot of it!) between Commander in Chief and this book.…I’ve read a good Blackwood or two (Cussler books?), Greaney is the better writer of the two for “Clancy” books and I think this book is a lot like genuine Tom Clancy writing.
Lots of detail, action and adventure, most of it all too believable. A “Jack Ryan” novel it’s much more Jack jr. than Senior and even has sister Sally in a few pages (I don’t remember much of her since “Patriot Games”).
Good book, well worth reading, all 742 pages of it.” By A. Burchfield
